The World Institute on Disability is seeking "Disability Ambassadors" to attend various professional conventions and advocate for improving con accessibility. This is NOT for SF cons, but for academic/business/political cons. As WID says on its site:

"Across America, convenings of civil rights and community development organizations help to set the economic opportunity agenda. Unless the conferences fully integrate disability access issues into their content—and people with disabilities are present—the needs and perspectives of the disability community will be largely left out of the discussion."

They supported folks attending ten conventions last year, including the NAACP, La Raza, and the National Housing Coalition, and nine cons this year so far!

Thursday morning I joined [personal profile] emceeaich and [personal profile] cynthia1960 for a leisurely breakfast at the Concourse. Delicious and tasty company. I then hung around aimlessly watching folks arrive. Nodding at folks whose faces have by now grown familiar. Snuggling with some of my annual pals.

Eventually, I rolled into my room and crashed.

Friday morning: Meal #2 at an amazing food cart -- El Grito Taqueria. Yes, pulled pork & pulled chicken make a lovely breakfast.
